Just Got In!
This book presents a special selection of commentaries by Osho on incomparable stories from the world of Sufism. Beginning with the haunting story of a stream that encounters a desert – and the fears and doubts that arise in the stream as a mysterious voice urges it to allow itself to disappear and be carried aloft by the wind – Osho invites us to explore the world of the Sufis.
In that world we discover the meaning of trust, the wisdom of the heart, the value of letting go, and so much more…. This is a strange phenomenon — that whenever a person has all that he needs he encounters the desert. The affluent society encounters the desert. The poor society is still far away from the desert. The affluence brings the desert very close by, because you have all that you were hoping for: you have the woman that you wanted, the house, the money, the prestige, the power.
You have all that you had always dreamt about, now there is no more left to dream: the desert has come. Now you suddenly feel a kind of insomnia. You cannot even sleep, the desert is all around. How to transcend this desert? — the desert of meaninglessness, the desert of anguish, the desert of absurdity.
